I am hypothyroid and I keep reading about the great benefits of coconut oil. I recall years ago reading the opposite. To avoid it and how bad it is for you and your heart. I don't understand why suddenly it's suppose to be so healthy. I bought a jar but I still can't open it. I keep thinking of all those articles I read years ago on why I shouldn't use coconut oil, especially if I have heart disease. I've never had a heart attack but I DO have high cholesterol. Now I read that coconut oil is good for high cholesterol. I have a problem trusting these reports. I think maybe the so-called "experts" all got together and said "Let's say it's good for people now because we're losing a lot of sales". Maybe I sound silly but that's how I think sometimes. Has anyone out there really benefited from coconut oil? And if you're hypothyroid like me, what has it done for you? Oh yeah, I just read a website where a doctor is saying don't believe all the benefits people are claiming. My head is spinning. I want to try the coconut oil I bought but I keep thinking it could be bad for me and also will clog up my arteries. Thanks very much for all who answer.
